And that's only a taste. You must go see (and sing!) the whole song over at OldLutheran.com. It's funny, it's clever, it's impossible to get out of your head -- and it actually teaches a lot of wonderful information.
[Sung to the tune of "Supercalifragilistic-expialidocious"]
When I was just ein junger Mann I studied canon law;
While Erfurt was a challenge, it was just to please my Pa.
Then came the storm, the lightning struck, I called upon Saint Anne,
I shaved my head, I took my vows, an Augustinian! Oh...
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation
Speak your mind against them and face excommunication!
Nail your theses to the door, let's start a Reformation!
Papal bulls, indulgences, and transubstantiation!
When Tetzel came near Wittenberg, St. Peter's profits soared,
I wrote a little notice for the All Saints' Bull'tin board:
"You cannot purchase merits, for we're justified by grace!
Here's 95 more reasons, Brother Tetzel, in your face!" Oh...
We plan to sing it tonight at our Reformation Party, as we roast the papal bull and enjoy a diet of (gummy) worms.
Happy Reformation Day -- a day worth celebrating!
